Mount Cook: Scenic Helicopter Flight with Alpine Landing
- Small group
- Duration: 25 minutes
The whole travel was stress free with amazing views all throughout the journey. The blue colour of lake pukaki is incredible, however the mount cook and other mountain ranges around made it perfect, as well as the short walk to hooker track that offers heaps of spots where you can relax and appreciate the glacier with the sound falling ice from afar. I bet everyone who visited wants to go back, including myself. Plus the tour guide is cheeky and friendly who knows what to say and also considerative to grant request like when we stop at the side of the road just down the mount cook village for photos.
Anujk was our driver/tour guide. He treated us very warmly the moment we met him at our apartment’s carpark. Throughout the entire trip, he was very knowledgeable in the history, geography and current rvents around Chch and knows all about the surrounding sceneries and mountains. He was very considerate of all of us in the tour making sure we are well taken cared of and felt secured. The views and experience was amazing! The day was well worth it! We even forgot our shopping bag from the car and Anujk kindly brought it back to our apartment, very gracious and kind indeed! Thank you!
Our day trip to Aoraki was easily the best day of our entire stay in Queenstown. Our guide Kreig’s commentary was informative and interesting and because we were a small group, it seemed more intimate. There were lots of stops on the way there and back for photo ops, the landscape of course was stunning so it was great that we were given multiple opportunities to stop and take it all in.
Super fun & super sunny. Great size group & enthusiastic driver. Was an early morning but totally worth it! Picture stops were fantastic & food stops were cute (lambs!) Didn’t know what to expect re Hooker Valley Track but was super doable & breathtaking! Would 100% redo this route. Great for solo travellers & couples.
The lake Pukaki is absolutely stunning and the short hike to watch the Glacier is nice. Refreshments are all stuffs I like haha~ Our guide Anujk is patient and friendly, he offered us some good recommendations about our trips in CHC. The car is comfy as well, this is important as it's a long drive from CHC to Mt Cook.
